Highlights from the November 2nd, 2020 Board of Directors Meeting

  • Gael Bissell will submit comments for Flathead Audubon related to the proposal to make modifications in Lawrence Park.  She will also submit comments to FWP for the proposed purchase by Flathead Land Trust, for a Conservation Easement in Bad Rock Canyon.
  • Joe Batts noted that Amy Seaman (Montana Audubon) is available to present their priorities for 2021 legislative session. The goal is to have this as part of the January program, and also posted on our YouTube site, so our membership can be informed about issues and bills.
  • Denny Olson reported that filming will begin for the second video, and that his raptor silhouettes are on display in the rafters of Lone Pine as an identification challenge.
  • Pam Willison offered the 2020 OSNA report, which was prepared in lieu of a fall meeting of the OSNA Committee, and is available on our website. She will submit a report and the invoices for weed control to Flathead Conservation District, so we can receive reimbursement from the grant we received from them.

Thanks To Those Who Have Renewed Their Membership

Thanks to all our loyal members who have renewed for this year! Flathead Audubon could not accomplish the important things we do without you. Most important, our education program would not exist without your support.

Note to those who have not yet renewed:  Normally you would not be receiving The Pileated Post this month without renewing but this year we are allowing an extra month because the renewal period was extended to November 15.  Thanks again. – Mike Fanning, Membership Chair
